Spring time is coming

Spring Cleaning folks......that is what I have been doing. I'm mopping the hardwood today and bathrooms floors....cleaned windows yesterday....we can see through them now.
A friend came over for coffee this morning..she brought me a Starbucks....yum yum. We chatted.
The trees in my yard are blooming they are so pretty, and I can hear people mowing. I love spring time. A new beginning. One thing that has not gone my way....my beloved dryer kicked the bucket last night. So tomorrow I go shopping for a new washer and dryer. Unfortunately. Life will go on. Thank God I had gotten caught up on laundry and Madison had jeans to wear...because she may have fallen apart with out them.
I'm running errands tomorrow. I have a dentist appointment and a nail appointment. And I need to find a new washer/dryer of course...and alot of you asked about my kitchen re model. I'm having new counter tops put down and a new sink. Along with stripping the cabinets and re staining them. So a major project in the works coming up next month. We are also having the trim work outside re painted along with shutters and getting a new front door and new back door....hooray!
Alot going on around here as usual. Madison has gymnastics and Scott has a volleyball game at church tonight. Biggest Loser is on....we love this show....go go girls.
I finally caught up with most of my blog lines.... that about wore me out.
For dinner tonight I'm making Chicken and Dressing.....and fruit salad. We'll have enough for leftovers tomorrow night. I hope you all have a great Spring day!

Another day in the busy life of Jen. I love being busy. I really don't like sitting around, except for grabbing a cup of Starbucks and taking a little break. Your friend is a nice girl to bring you some over.

My dryer is sounding kind of crappy lately. I may have to cave and buy one. So far my washer does pretty good.

May I ask how you clean your hardwood floors? we are moving into new housing soon a few streets down and they have hardwood downstairs so I am not sure what to wash them with. I have carpet all over now.

PS when you get a new washer and dryer let me know how you like them. I am going to start looking soon.

I bet you are so excited about the new changes going on in your home. I can't wait to see the pictures.

We have been extremely busy with church activities. I have been trying to do some spring cleaning but seem to start a project then get detoured. That's to be expected with 3 boys ages 5 and under at home, I guess.

Still, I really miss having everything neatly in its place all the time.

I wish I could say spring has sprung here. So sad. I'll have to post pictures soon of all the snow we still have :(
